I should have added a 'IMHO' there of course. I liked everything PF had done up to that point, even AHM which has it's dull moments, but I hated that album from the first time I heard it.

For a start it was just songs, which I found lacklustre and over-produced, and this from the band that brought us 'Echoes'!

Then there was the subject matter - madness, greed, militarism - all common currency at the time, safe and guaranteed mass appeal.

And the cover is boring.

But it's been in the charts since God's Dad was young so I accept that I'm very much in the minority.
